No, I haven't and reading this, I'm glad I didn't try!Patrizia said:anyone tried changing the screensavers over yet.. I did last night and it was a disaster.. froze up everything I finally had to remove the entire file.. anyone else had any luck?
I thought alt-z made the kindle accept the files, and alt-shift-0 had something to do with turning the pages? I know: no horse in this race. lol.Octochick said:That will be very depressing if they blocked that! I hate those screen savers and it think it is a great way to add security as well. I though it was alt-shift-0?
not z. I am going to give it a try!
I agree it was a hack or loophole but they could solve that by just making it an easy option. The tools are there, a simple menu option to "save as screensaver" would be all it takes. I do not even care if you then have to use only one. This is a basic thing in my mind available on low rent computers, cell phones etc... Most of us leave our K's in a screensaver mode 24/7, not having an option to choose an image we want is a real step backward, imo.Leslie said:My immediate guess is...this is a hack that they closed the loophole on. As I have said elsewhere on this board, I have had many people get in touch with me who need to "fix" their Kindles after trying (unsuccessfully) to put screensavers on. If people are getting in touch with me, just a user who answers questions, I can't imagine the volume of calls/questions/comments that CS has gotten on this issue. I am sure in the redesign, the edict came down, "Disable the undocumented user feature that let's people add their own screensavers" and it was done.
The question is, will the hackers of the world find a second workaround, like they did the first time?
